New opportunities to attend the 2024 National Eucharistic Congress are coming in an effort to expand the impact of a pivotal moment in the movement to renew the Catholic Church in the United States by bringing forth an encounter with the living Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist! Announced officially at the USCCB Fall 2023 Plenary Assembly in Baltimore, Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Chairman of the Board of the National Eucharistic Congress, Inc., shared concrete plans to increase the accessibility and affordability of next summer’s event.

In early January, new single-day and weekend pass options will open as well as available scholarship money via the Solidarity Fund. These new opportunities, along with a complete schedule of events, are coming in the new year on the Congress website.
